I am sorry but it begs asking :laugh: . If a Gas Gas steers so well why did you put a CRF front end on your Gas Gas :huh: :laugh: :P (I dont care about facts either :laugh: )

Oh yeah nothing steers like a XR250 you are 100% correct IMO

In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away

A tube would be cheaper than $700, you forgot to add the Showa is a better front end ;) Still further off topic Ollie I will have a heap of XR 650 parts coming up soon. I am not getting rid of my XR just have doubles and triples of soooooo many parts gathered up over years if you are interested. There is everything from new and second hand plastics to triple trees to shocks, forks, wheels, sprockets, blinkers, radiators, hoses, stators, electrics, swing arms, linkages, discs, maybe motard wheels, brake callipers, master cylinders and heaps more

Thanks mate ;) could do with some new blinkers maybe Motard heels B)

Marzocchi suspension is a copy of 92 model showa same as what was on my old 360 Husky :laugh: my fork tubes had been worked over so factor in another $3-400 in the end just not worth it.

Hey Rookie sorry mate about going off subject - get ya sis to have a look at an Alloy frame WRF ;) cant go wrong !

Ollie

What ever !!

The 250exc-f had a cam chain tensioner problem, that allows the chain to jump a tooth and lock everything up. The problem existed right through to the 2009 model. Just ask Moose, they had all sorts of trouble with their 09 model.

Like the other guys have said, go a WR.
